Symposium for Goodness’ Sake: Fall 2019

Tuesday, November 5, 2019, 8:00 AM

The Symposium for Goodness’ Sake is tailored for individuals interested in learning the essentials behind the inner workings of Community First! Village and how they can go about getting started on a similar project with purpose. From the individual who longs to help the panhandler on the corner, to those who plan to launch a Community First! movement in their own cities, each Symposium attendee will be empowered by this paradigm-breaking, faith-based approach to caring for the chronically homeless with compassion and dignity. The Symposium for Goodness’ Sake is far more than a simple overview of Community First! Village. The Mobile Loaves & Fishes team takes participants on a deep dive into the philosophy, approach and processes behind making such an operation work. Through interactive talks, workshops, tours and other consultative guidance, we aim to give Symposium attendees the benefit of more than two decades’ worth of experience. More than anything, please know that we are grateful for your desire to “love your neighbor” by serving our homeless brothers and sisters who are in need. As you embark on such a fulfilling journey, we invite you to take part in one of our Symposia to help better shape your understanding of the Community First! model and how you can bring a similar vision to your own community.To get the complete Village experience we encourage all attendees to stay here at the Village's onsite Bed & Breakfast, The Community Inn. The Symposium For Goodness’ Sake Eventbrite ticket does not automatically include lodging, as we only have a limited number of units available at this time. However, we encourage attendees to explore available units and book online at The Community Inn. Select the "Bring-A-Friend" ticket at check-out and save $60 per ticket!
